He's been with the Lafayette Fire Department for ten years.

McCord received a new badge and collar pins during the ceremony.

Chief Richard Doyle says although the new badge weighs the same as the old, the new position holds a heavier responsibility.

McCord says no matter the rank, the goal of the firefighter is always the same.

"To work hard and make sure you do everything right and get everybody home."

McCord wants to thank all the other department firefighters who helped over the years to prepare him for the rank of sergeant.
